    • New Added possibility to search pages and blog pages ignoring user selected language

    Increase the processing speed of Live Search queries to a hundredth of a second and reduce the load on your database using the new Turbo Cache feature in Live Search addon starting at version 8.0.0.

    Turbo Cache is a cache built based on user search queries. The results of each new search query are stored in the cache. In the event that the search query is already in the cache, the module bypasses the search query and returns the list of products directly from the cache. However, the prices of the products are always retrieved from the database. This means that you do not need to clear the turbo cache if you are only updating the prices of products. Turbo Cache operates on the Redis storage. To enable turbo cache on your server, the Redis service must be installed and running.
